I’ve been editing typos. SO many typos. And infelicities. And repetitions. I have an over fondness for words like shelter and terrible and mystery. Relinquish, stupid, and, disaster also reoccur. I’m fixing everything!

I’m reading the collected short stories of Amy Hempel. Also Lydia Davis. What are you reading?
